.... this week Colour Q - cQc67, has a great colour challenge - really bright, vibrant colours!! I was delighted and excited, and then I was stumped!! I couldn't come up with anything!
And this card is not what you'd expect with such fruity colours!! A football card - I don't suppose this features on too many cards in this challenge! Actually, it's an image that I stamped last year for the School Fair but it didn't end up getting to a card. However, it gave me an idea as it was already half way to the colours above - all I had to do was add pink and green!! Easy. Actually, no! I decided to keep it really simple and just added a faux stitched border in pink and green, and a greeting in green. And I'm actually rather pleased how it turned out. No flowers or butterflies - which is what I'd originally thought of, but football. Strange how things turn out.
Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Off Beat Backgrounds; I don't know who made the football lad
Inks: Memento - Pear Tart, Rose Bud; Sakura Glaze pens - orange, blue
Spellbinders: Curved Rectangles (S5-006)
It's been a busy day - I had hoped to post these much earlier, but I got here evenutally. The weather today has been and continues to be absolutely awful - it's grey, wet and really, really windy. So it's nice that we've all been able to stay tucked up in the warm.
Kathryn has one of her friends over for a sleepover tonight. Why's it called a sleepover? The kids never get to sleep until really late and then they're up with the dawn!! Still they're enjoying playing on the PC and we're going to have a "picnic" tea of pizza!!
That's all for now. Don't forget to come by tomorrow for my CR84FN post.
